Update 86

Posted by: Hut 90 on steam_community_announcements September 28, 2018

Fixes and Updates for Experimental Branch:

  • Practice mode re-enabled
  • Mystery boxes updated

Practice Mode

Practice mode is re-enabled in the game, but limited to only 1 level (Acme City) for now. The ammo for all ranged weapons in this game mode is set to 100, so that players can have plenty of time to try out each weapon. You can also manually change the weapons for all players in the game by pressing the number 1 or 2 keys on a keyboard.

Mystery Box

This is still a work-in-progress, but mystery boxes are something that players can drop when they run out of lives in local multiplayer. The player can choose to drop a melee weapon, ranged weapon, a trap, or a kill trophy. Kill trophies will make sense in the future, as we are still developing that feature of the game.

Gamepad Issues

We are aware that some people have been having gamepad issues with the game, and we believe we have narrowed it down to what is causing it. When we updated the game engine, we also updated the input manager, which is causing some issues for the gamepads. Fixing this is quite simple. Just go into Options > Controls and reset the controls to default, or manually assign the gamepad’s buttons for each action.

Experimental Branch

You can download the ‘experimental’ branch on Steam at any time by right-clicking on the ‘Akuto: Mad World’ game name on the Steam library page and selecting 'Properties' from the window that opens. From this window select the 'BETAS' tab and then the 'experimental' option from the dropdown menu (the menu labelled 'Select the beta you would like to opt into:’.

To revert back to the latest build of Akuto: Mad World, change the branch to 'NONE- Opt out of all beta programs' from the same menu.
